Julin Castro warns Democrats of 'potential slide of Latino support' [View all]

Julián Castro, the lone Latino to run for the Democratic presidential nomination this year, has warned at the outset of the party’s convention Democrats risk losing Latino support if they do not make greater efforts at inclusion.

“I think that we could win the battle and lose the war,” Castro told Axios, of the fight to defeat Donald Trump. “We could win in November, but you could see a potential slide of Latino support for Democrats.”

Castro spoke as activists directed a welter of criticism at the Democratic National Committee for inviting only three Latino politicians to speak independently during the four-day convention.
